Greetings! While Double Deck Pinochle is my principle game played in my Hoyle Card Games 2008, I've been playing a lot of Spades recently. I chose the highest level of difficulty. The playing strategy of both my opponents and partner do not make any sense to me. In other words, their play is wrong. Just this morning, the opponent to my left played the Ace of Spades and my partner played a King of Spades. There were three to five cards left and on the next trick, my partner played a low heart. Why didn't my partner throw out the low heart on the Ace, making their King of Spades high for a subsequent trick? Another example would be I'll throw out the trick winning card and my partner [fourth to lay down on the trick] takes the trick with either a trump or a higher suit card. That makes no sense to me. I've never played the game on Easy level of difficulty and would expect to see these play mistakes at that level but not at difficult level. My opponents make the same misplays as my partner. Comments?
